The impressive three-level Sea and Rock villa gets its name from its surrounding landscape, a mountainside site with fantastic seascape views over Camps Bay in Cape Town, South Africa. This expansive retreat features plenty of decking areas, pergolas with potted plants and a large ying and yang-shaped Zen garden. The design compliments the textures of the rocky backdrop while taking full advantage of the exterior living spaces and incorporating saltwater pools and jacuzzis.
Ã¢â‚¬Å“The ingenious versatility of this six-bedroom villa/ one bedroom apartment is its ability to function as either three separate apartments, each sleeping six on self-contained floors, a main home and guest storey, each with its own pool and jacuzzi, or as one triple-level villa interconnected with and accessible from each level via steep stone steps. The design is wrought in indigenous natural materials of signature Ã¢â‚¬ËœbalauÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ timber decking and in the interior travertine tiling and Caesar-Stone. The villa is environmentally-friendly in minimizing water use by means of an electronically controlled watering system, rain-water tank irrigation recycling and rooftop solar panels. On the first level above the garage and storage rooms, the guest suite/master bedroom opens onto a very large deck and unique feature of a swirling pebble and grass-effect Zen-style garden of cacti plants and quartz boulders.
Fluorescent spot-lights after dark, as with the heated rim-flow pool above, lead you up wooden step tiers to a plunge pool. The night time effect is particularly picturesque as ultra-violet lighting transforms the pools into glowing jewels. Alternatively, you can take a relaxing dip in the nearby Jacuzzi. The first floor apartment sleeps four with a king-size bed and a double-sleeper couch in the lounge while the kitchen has full-specification.Ã¢â‚¬Â
